Brave customers let barber cut their hair with fire
Brave customers are going up in the flames at the hands of one barber who cuts their hair using fire.
Kadir Demirel, who runs Kapsalon in Istanbul, has ditched the scissors and opts for a more unusual technique – spraying flammable liquid on his client’s hair and setting it alight.
Footage taken inside the salon shows Kadir using a comb to brush a customers hair while it is still burning and smoking.
It goes without saying that this should not be tried at home.
The 39-year-old said: "I learnt this technique during my barber training in Turkey.
"Traditionally it was used as a way of burning away lice when there was no cure and it was also used to style and smooth hair as there were no hair dryers at the time.
"I use it to tame frizzy hair and burn away dead ends. Healthy hair isn’t damaged by this technique.
"It can also be used to remove static hair after a cut but I wouldn’t recommend anyone trying it without proper training."
Footage shows Kadir spraying his client’s head with the flammable liquid.
He then sets it on fire and large flames burn on the top of his head.
As the flames burn down the barber combs the hair to reveal the finished cut.
At one point in the clip he can even be seen to be combing a clients hair while it is still ablaze.
And amazingly the men sit in the barber’s chair without even flinching as their hair catches alight.
Kadir added: "My customers aren’t scared because they trust me and it’s not painful. I have one customer who is just seven years old and another who is eight.
"I enjoy my work because it’s so different. I also like to teach other barbers how to use this technique."
